RajaAfrika.com (2010)
http://www.rajaafrika.com
Portland, OR
 
The Client
Martin Welch is a media aficionado.
 
I believe that internet media is the next frontier. Ultimately internet media will merge with our investments in large display media (Plasma TVs) and we will get our TV from the internet rather than cable providers. Much like the early days of the internet, early movers in the field of web-based media today will be the moguls of tomorrow. 
 
With this in mind, I created RajaAfrika.com
 
The Challenge
RajaAfrika.com is currently in version 3. Version 1 used a collection of YouTube videos to display content. Users could watch one video and then after, click another video that they wanted to watch. Nice, but hardly a TV station. Version 2 incorporated AJAX to better streaming and ASP.NET Membership to allow members to create playlists. Version 3 is begining to incorporate advertisements and other personalization features.
 
The challenge with RajaAfrika.com is to create an engrossing environment that feels like TV and that enables visitors to sit back and enjoy an experience rather than just a video.

The interface needed to be intuitive for non-technical users and still have compelling advanced features for more seasoned users. WorldLightASP also needed to support both sales and designer affiliate programs that could be easily managed from the website as well as e-commerce features such as recurring billing and shopping carts.

Course Technology’s flagship product Skills Assessment Manager (SAM), an enterprise class, distributed, student academic and placement testing application had rapidly outgrown its ability to support its user base. The SAM application was in active use by over 400,000 students and educational institutions that needed hot-fixes and could not suffer excessive downtime.I worked as part of a team of developers to track and fix bugs in the SAM application, posted hot-fixes to clients while simultaneously working independently to improve the system’s scalability through normalization of the underlying data-model and re-factoring server-side code into Classic ASP classes. The end result was a dramatic reduction in outages due to server overload and highly reusable code for the SAM application.

The second version of this tool was an ASP port that delivered all of the same rich user interface functionality in a web client that users had come to expect from the Outlook forms application. As the deployment environment mandated zero changes to either the server or client configurations, this functionality had to be delivered through extensive client-side scripting and Dynamic HTML.
